Jurassic Park III ultimately falls right in line with its immediate predecessor...

Jurassic Park III is cynically amusing, not least when it takes digs at the previous films, and, most surprising of all, it actually may leave you wanting more.

A marked improvement over its immediate predecessor, this film works as a fast and efficient thriller that offers a few great surprises along the way.

True, the film offers little new, but it's still stirring family entertainment...

It's not art ... it's entertainment, and it knows it. Boy, does it entertain.

If you're looking for a tight script, interesting three-dimensional characters and something new with this movie, you will be disappointed.

For a sequel with a Roman numeral in the title, Jurassic Park III is more entertaining than expected.

People who go to see Jurassic Park III are not there for character development, they want cool-looking dinosaurs, and that they will get in spades.

For those who vehemently debate whether a Spinosaurus can outfight a T-Rex, this movie will comfortably pass your time -- or devour it.

JP3 is not as intricate or as new as the original, nor as howlingly elaborate as the sequel, but in its own formulaic way, it's a nice little thrill ride that achieves what it's designed for.

No lawyers getting eaten, no white-knuckle tension and nothing shocking. A bit of a disappointment.

Jurassic Park 3 is so fast-paced that it seems like one long action sequence only occasionally pausing to catch its breath. This is a good thing because then one doesn't have the time to ponder any plot implausibilities and idiocies...

Never overdoes itself, and its story never distracts from the action.

Whereas the success of sequels is generally dependent upon how many of the original stars and key filmmaking personnel such as writer and director, this excellent monster movie would stand on its own.

Much like an ice cream cone, this one is fairly fun while it lasts and entirely forgettable after the fact.
